  • Amp regrets?

    Ever let an amp go that you wish you hadn't?

    I had a Mesa Dual Rec (VERY LOW SERIAL NUMBER) that I sold for a mint but still regret selling it. Same with my old Bogner Ecstasy 100B.

    Hardly a day goes by that I don't think about those amps and anytime I am looking for any amp I am always searching for those amps.
    The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.

      That looks like a decoy for carrying gold bars across the sea.

        The OG Marshall Valvestate 100 head. If I had gotten today's prices out of it there would be no regrets, but iirc I nearly had to give it away back in the late 90s.

          Should have never sold my Randall RG120 orange stripe head. I sold it to get my first JC 120 combo. When I listen to old recordings of that amp I wonder what I was thinking when I sold it.

            Its amazing what those are fetching now along with their renewed popularity.

              They are popular again?

              I had a Valvestate 40 and it was just ok.

                I had a DSL50 A Fender super Sonic 22
                an or15
                A Princeton 68 custom

                I really miss all of them now! They were each great at something. The or15 is easiest to replace.

                Probably not as heavy as op's regrets but

                I think about it when I play my bugera. I'm keenly aware that it is just ok.

                  1st Gen Peavey 5150 Head.
                  Marshall JCM 900 MkIII 100 watt head

                  Both are way too loud for anything I do now but man, both great amps.

                  Marshall Lead 12 Combo. Fun little amp.

                    Oh that must have been the recto Road King 212. Did it have a C90 in one side and V30 in the other?

                      It might have been what it turned into after they stopped calling it the Road King. It had two Mesa-branded UK-made V30s and two back panels - one full and the other half open.
                      Yeah that one seems more rare. Those are more like a tweekable pair of 112s. I bet it sounded great!

                        Yeah, you may as well add my Marshall VS100 combo to the list. I am not sure how much I would have played it but being 100/60 watts and 1x12 it was a great portable amp for jamming and small gigs. It definitely had its uses.

                          Selling my 80's Ampeg combo... Don't even remember the model. Sometimes I wish I'd kept my fuzzy Fender H.O.T.

                            The only amp I regret selling was a Carvin X100B. Great amp and at the time it just didn't do it for me. I liked everything about it though, which seems odd why I got rid of it, but I was more into the Soldano thing at that time. I have since grown and know now that the X100B would be more up my alley.

                              My only other regret is the Krank Rev Jr. I regret ever buying it, which is why it got sold after a couple years.
                              It sounded OK and never failed me, but having full-size glass I was expecting more thump/grab in the lows. It just sounded very small, albeit good.

                              The first thing I noticed when receiving it was that the power tubes were literally almost touching each other, like close enough it could have held a credit card tightly pinched between.
                              I could never get a handle on the highs either. They were always too harsh and annoying, or turned down they were too dark and murky.
